Completed 4 more pages

These two pages I did using an adapted layout from Close to My Hearts Imagine layout book
Papers were supplied by Memory Works Consultant Deborah Cariker for her design team kit.

These two pages are also from Deborah Cariker Memory Work kits. They will be used toward my friends Christmas Album surprise Gift.
All four pages counted toward my Personal Challenge. I'm really making some head way and getting through my mounds of photos by simply making a personal challenge like I did. Of course it helps to have a dedicated day each week for scrapbooking. However, I will not be able to attend for the next 3 weeks....Oh what will I do?

Pluggin away at the ol' Stash Bash Challenge

Photos of my 13 year old daughter when she was about 9 months old. The stack of photos from 1996 is getting slowly smaller. This page uses Random stamping on the background of the layout and then Rub on's for the lettering on the vellum. All products Close to My Heart.

These pictures are from 1997 and are of my Niece KayLeigh and her birth.
Again a demonstration on how to use Random Stamping as shown in the Tag photo frame.

Sesame Street Live Layout

Puppy Pages - 4 in all of our Baby. Most items were custom created by my friend Lelia Pierce. Others I compiled. All layouts were on the spot designed by myself based on what I had for the pages.

Coco is my son's dog. She is a special Hypo-Allergenic Dog due to his allergies he hasn't been able to have a pet other than a fish and a horrible experience with a Hermit Crab. We got Coco for him after searching for months for the right type of dog. He named her Coco Pretty and boy does she know who her boy is. shhh she is everyone in the family's 'Baby'

Another Stash Bash Series of Layouts

These two layouts begins a six layout series I did to commemorate our 2008 Christmas Family Project. Each year we decide on a "PROJECT" and this last year we baked our hearts out, Made gift baskets to all our special people (neighbor who always gives us great light shows on Halloween and Christmas etc.) The titles were done by Patti A from my Snag n' Piff group on Yahoo (ScrapbookPlace) All the elves, bowls, cookies etc. were done by Lelia P (a dear friend). The panels with stitching were piffed to me by Linda W.

I added puffy paint to the gingerbread guys and tree to give them some dimension. All six of the layouts are from Jeanette Lynton's layout books. I choose (3) 2 page layouts that worked well together. I then laid out all the paper I wanted to use and spec'ed out how it would all pull together.
